Benchmarks

Max Payne

In Max Payne, the Xabre positions itself between the GeForce4 MX440 and MX460. The downside to this good performance are a few image errors in the form of flickering triangles. SiS has informed us that they are aware of the problem and are already working on a fix. As for the performance - no complaints there!
